GOVT TO SCRAP PAPER, GOES DIGITAL
The Executive Vice Chairman of the Nigerian Communications Commission, Prof. Umar Danbatta, and the Director-General, Bureau of Public Service Reforms, Dr Dasuki Arabi, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to accelerate the digitisation reform process in the government.
Speaking at an event which took place at the NCC’s Head Office in Abuja, Danbatta said the MoU would enhance efficiency and productivity.
He noted that the commission would continue to drive broadband penetration, which would provide the backbone upon which the process will thrive.
In a statement signed by Director, Public Affairs, NCC, Reuben Muoka, he said, “Indeed, the transition will be worth it, as the process is associated with efficiency, which naturally results from operating a paperless system of governance or administration at the level of entities such as the Bureau for Public Service Reforms and the Nigerian Communications Commission.”
“Remarkably, at the end of the assessment, NCC emerged as the first agency to be rated Platinum Organisation by the Tool, having exceptionally exceeded expectations in all good practices built around nine domain areas.”
